Understanding Erectile Dysfunction
Understanding Erectile Dysfunction in Men: Is Low Testosterone the Link
There are many reasons why men have erectile dysfunction (or E.D.). There are also many solutions. If you get nothing else from this paragraph, get this: don’t despair—we can help.
You should also realize that E.D. is common. The Massachusetts Male Aging Study reported that:
By age 40, 40% of adult men have some degree of E.D.
- This rate increases to about 70% by age 70.
- The rate of E.D. in the adult male population overall is 52%.
- E.D. affects 30 million men in the United States. It’s just that no one talks about it.
Causes of Erectile Dysfunction
Here are some of the more common culprits:
Men need testosterone to function sexually. And they need a lot of it. If you don’t have enough, things aren’t going to work optimally.
Men need some estrogen for heart and bone health; but too much estrogen is counterproductive for men, particularly when it comes to sexual function.
Health Conditions and Medications
Common health conditions that cause E.D. include diabetes, heart disease, high blood pressure, various conditions of the prostate, and some surgeries. Medications for high blood pressure, antidepressants, and blood thinners can also cause sexual dysfunction.
